EDITOR'S AWARD: WHO DECIDES?

Hi,

What criteria deem a quiz Editor award-worthy? Who decides, and what number of votes (where applicable) are necessary? If I feel a previously unvoted quiz deserves the award, how would I effect this?

The editors decide when they edit the quiz. If you think a quiz is really good, you can go to the Hit List forum and post a recommendation and help it get more play.

Cheers!

Smoke, you might want to mention the fact that hardly anyone looks at the "Hit List" Anything not on "Salty Dog' doesn't get noticed or read by the vast majority.

Um, when a new post is made, it just put on top, no matter where its posted, so even hit list gets a shot at getting read.

Yes, this one will show for a few seconds. My point was anything one wants to be noticed must be on "Salty Dog' been there done that that it is not the way it should be but it is what it is..

I've taken lots of good quizzes because I saw them on the hit list, and got lots of takers when one of mine was posted.

Lots of folks check the hit list and take quizzes listed there, and then find their way to all of that author's quizzes.

EA quizzes don't seem to get more play than others. Less, maybe.

You're right. I haven't been taking many quizzes and haven't written anything since I came back, so I hadn't noticed how it's fallen off. Too bad. We should use it more often, it does work when it's used.

Here is the $2.08 question: How acceptable is it to post a quiz you feel has been well-written? That is, posting your own quiz in a tasteful way, e.g. to attract people to your own quiz that you feel may rate high.

I personally don't have a problem with it, but some people will give you a hard time about "self-promotion" and it can backfire.

I'd just write the best darned quiz I could and hope for the best all around.

I agree that self-promotion is not well received here. I try to write really good quizzes and count on others to post in the Hit List or to one of the other forums so that word-of-mouth becomes my advertisement.

If your quiz is REALLY popular, it will make it to the "25 Most Popular Quizzes" list and that really boosts your quiz takers.

Every time I see a post about EA, I always think about the Pandora's box.

I get alot of, "This one should have got an EA". But I guess mine are not good enough, no matter how hard I try!
